Centralia Downtown Association
The Centralia Downtown Association (CDA) offers the opportunity to buy a flower basket to help blanket downtown in color once again this Spring. $75 Baskets can be designated for a specific placement downtown and can be purchased at downtowncentralia.org. Baskets should be up by Mother’s Day and a Community Clean Up Day is also planned for Sunday, May 6. This is a great opportunity for business owners, residents, churches and other groups to band together to get Centralia ready for the busy summer season. A coordinated sidewalk and street cleaning will follow on May 7 and 8 to further beautify the downtown. CDA General Meetings happen on the Third Monday of each month and they are open to the public. We have a new location each month to feature the incredible array of businesses, event spaces, restaurants and more throughout downtown. Our offices and welcome center are now open in the Wilson Hotel at 328 N Tower Ave. We are open Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 10-5 and will soon be open 5 days a week.
